Here is my suggestion for the day after Valentine's Day. On your way home from work, stop at the library and check out a romantic suspense book and then stop at the store and buy discounted leftover valentine chocolate. I just finished Smash Cut by Sandra Brown, a perfect romantic suspense to read with chocolate. In this book, Paul Wheeler, wealthy CEO of Wheeler Enterprises, and Julie Rutledge, a beautiful young art dealer, have been meeting every Tuesday at a posh hotel for the the past two years. One Tuesday when Paul and Julie are leaving the hotel, a masked
gunman kills Paul. No one can explain this evil act. His family wants to avoid scandal. Paul's nephew and heir, Creighton Wheeler, has an alibi, but Julie is certain the he is somehow responsible. She will do anything to prove it. Julie knows that the family will retain the best defense lawyer in Atlanta to represent him. She tracks down this lawyer, handsome Derek Mitchell, and compromises his ability to represent Creighton. How? I can't say in this blog but check out page 27! What she does not expect is to truly be attracted to Derek. Derek also falls for Julie, but he cannot completely trust her. He knows she is keeping secrets. But, who can they trust if not each other? Will they be able to stop the evil? This book is a real page turner with plenty of twists and turns. Buy plenty of chocolate!
